about

ALWAYS YOU
Prophetic lush deep house track.

1st single from album
THEY DANCE IN THE DARK

Imagine a party, where Gary Numan is married to The Orb, who is slow dancing with Massive Attack, while Oum Kalthoum French kissing Prince and finally, Daphne Oram is mixing the drinks. THEY DANCE IN THE DARK largely references 80’s & 90’s electronic dance music. The height of hooky, dark electronic anthems with an underlying post-colonial narrative.

ALWAYS YOU
features the vocals of Rosina from Canadian duo LAL. Rosina is a long time collaborator of RENU. She has featured on RENUS earlier albums and they were also both band members of recently deceased Sam Zamans (the godfather of the Electronic Asian Undergound)'State of Bengal'.

Two years on and off in the Holykuti Studios, produced in London, Berlin & Beirut with singers & performers from Ireland, Iraq, Pakistan, UK & Lebanon, They Dance in the Dark first started as an experiment. Realising her true introvertism RENU worked through mainly the computer and the philosophy of playing Tablas in mind: creating big & infinite sounds with a minimum set up.

THEY DANCE IN THE DARK is RENU´s personal imprint as a weird queer femme in a weird queer world.

lyrics

In the Beginning there was darkness
But there was always you
And when I searched for light
I found her
scratching at the strobe
and when I search the light
as hope dance
as hope dances through

but there was always you
